  1. Putting together a new system for my sister, checking it with you guys to see if it's all fine and dandy. Links are finnish but you'll probably get the idea anyway:

    Dual Core E5200 I'm a bit confused about this, what's the difference to Core 2 Duo?
    Gigabyte P31-ES3G
    2x 1GB DDR2
    Fuj:tech midtower
    Chieftec APS-400S 400W
    Sapphire Radeon HD 4550
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB
    Acer V223Wbd 22" She's looking at displays at some stores first, and if she can't find anything amazing, we'll just get this.

    Anything that's missing I'll salvage from her old system.

      A bit late for that. This system is probably already overkill for her anyway. =p

      Just put the thing together, everything seems to be in order. Only problem I had was with the case, it's pretty much a piece of shit. It's made of some sort of soft metal that bends out of shape really easily. One of its side panels was bent out of the box.

      Everything only just about fits. The video card is slightly bent for the connectors to fit out of the back. The PCI card screws have some kind of a cover on them... too bad the VGA cable connector is on the way, so I can't put it back on until I find a DVI cable (display came with just VGA).

      Although it serves its purpose, I don't think I'll buy such a cheap case from some random manufacturer again.

      Reminds me of a case I bought on eBay several years back - big mistake - flimsy construction, sharp edges all over the place, a side panel riveted in place and vibrations I couldn't silence. It was put out with the rubbish a couple of weeks later after I bought the case I'm currently using.
